Big love for menstrual cups! Here’s a little love letter to one of my most appreciated objects in everyday life. ❤
On average, women menstruate for a total of about 6 1/2 years in life, which equals roughly 2400 days of our lifetime. According to statistics, women spend more than 2000€ for products needed for menstrual hygiene in their life. Thus, tons of plastic waste is being produced. Sanitary napkins consist of synthetic materials which aren’t eco-degradable. With tampons, it’s similar. They are products for one-time usage and belong to the most frequently occuring items polluting our seas. Even those made of cotton are only used once and cause lots of trash.
Menstrual cups are the perfect sustainable alternative and already make a lot of women’s lives easier.
